Publisher's Summary

Book one in the sexy and intense new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!

There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.

The moment I walked into Sonoma's Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn't change why I came for her.

EXCELLENT.. A SEXY ROMANTIC MYSTERY

I knew, as soon as this first book in the White Lies Duet was released, that I just couldn’t listen to it.. well not then anyway and not until the second book became available. And it’s not because it isn’t tempting - because it is.. and it’s not because the author is an unknown - because she IS well-known, well respected and she’s very talented. No, it’s because I had been a willing participant stuck in one of this author’s sticky webs before with no desire to be freed until the final words had been spoken. So I patiently waited.. and was rewarded with a listen that completely consumed me, entertained and enthralled me.. and left me glad that I’d got book two waiting in the wings to give me ALL the answers, the character growth and the HEA ending I desperately need.

Wealthy Attorney Nick Rogers went to Reid Winter Winery in search of clues that’d expose a cold blooded killer who’d orchestrated the deaths of his Father and the killer’s very own Mother - but, from the moment Nick laid his eyes on Faith, he knew he was in big trouble.. and the beautiful feisty clever woman challenged him all the way. And, the further along he got in their supposed ‘one night’ relationship, the harder it became for Nick because, rather than a cold blooded money hungry killer, all Nick could see was the selfless Artist who’d been trapped living a life she didn’t choose. In Nick’s eyes that didn’t make Faith guilty.. it made her self-sacrificing, innocent and vulnerable.. but Nick had so many secrets, told so many lies and kept his true purpose for seeking her out away from Faith. What was he going to do when she found out his truths? This woman had completely stolen his heart.. he was the courtroom Tiger who ripped the throat out of his opponents.. who was always dominant.. the cold blooded powerful ruthless Lawyer.. the man who didn’t believe in love or HEA’s. He now believed in one.. but would he ever get the second because guilty or not Faith is his.. he’ll stand by her.. protect her.. cover for her.. have faith in her.. and pray she’ll forgive him.

Faith had come to her late Father’s Winery after he’d died to help her Mother cope.. but she’d been impossibly stuck there for two long years - and now her Mother is dead which has left Faith drowning in red tape, Bank accounts locked and the wolves are at the door desperate to shut her down. Then she saw an opportunity to forget her troubles for just one night with an arrogant handsome bastard whose eyes, mouth, body, cocky confident sex appeal and alpha personality tempted her for the first time in two years. And, through the haze of lust, the pull of chemistry and the power of their passion - one night led so so much more.. because Faith slowly awakened, opened up, trusted and let Nick into her troubled world.. but how badly is she going to regret it?

This really is a clever and addictive dual POV story that slowly opens up to reveal and conceal truths, doubts, personalities, secrets and suspicions as the plot progresses through clever banter, hot days and nights of sex and sin while you’re drip-fed character and clues. There’s a growing closeness between Faith and Nick that’s been built entirely on Nick’s lies and suspicions.. and you know the truth will explode and rock their relationship when it’s finally revealed. So, I’m off to listen to the next book in this Duet to see how this alpha badboy is going to talk his way out of trouble and win back Faith’s.. err faith, see if Faith finally becomes a successful Artist, find out who the real murderer is and why he/she wants the Winery.

Worth a credit? Murder led to silent accusations, suspicion, secrets, sex and mystery. It was instant attraction, instant chemistry and instant lust between two well-matched damaged people. Two kindred spirits whose intense relationship urges them to reassess their thoughts on love.. they certainly found obsession. It’s well narrated too.. and YES this first book is definitely creditworthy.

Excellent Novel

Lisa has a real knack for leading the reader down a tantalizing path that demands your attention. I can't wait for the next book to see what happens!

Meh

A struggle to finish. The whole first half was corny and predictable. Fifty shades shadowing.

Tried, but gave up several chapters into book

Couldn't stand male narrator voice and Storyline hard to get into. I was really excited to read this duet but gave up. Only the second audio book i have ever stopped listening. I love the authors other books but gritty, wordy, male narrators voice too irratating to continue.

Okay - cliffhanger

The murder mystery plot is interesting, although dragged out - nothing is resolved in this book. Ends abruptly. Strange to split up book 1 and 2.

The characters are well-rounded / three-dimensional / well written.

A couple of passionate scenes. Very vanilla.

Narration is okay, although I do agree with other reviews that the male narrator has an overly-dramatic style that can take you out of the story sometimes.

Overacting Spoils the Story

I only made it through part of the first chapter before deleting the audiobook. The narrator is terrible. He has a great voice and enunciates well but overdramatizes so much that I couldn’t stand it.

Warning Cliffhanger!

The story was good but it just stopped. I hate cliffhangers! I don’t think I will be buying any more of this authors books. I would have rated it higher if it had an ending. That is a shame because the narrators were great!

Sexy suspense!

5 Crazy Ass Must Listen Stars!!!!!

Grace Grant. I just can't get enough of her voice. And Lance Greenfield. Oh, wait an aural delight this book was.

Lisa Renee Jones is my favorite author when it comes to Romantic Suspense. She just draws me in every time with her storylines. This one was no different.
Nick's motives for getting close to Faith had me on the edge of my seat. Literally. I was so wrapped up into listening how the story played out that I caught myself sitting on the edge of the sofa, the stool at the kitchen counter, and even against the bumper of my car.

I'm eager to see where Shameless takes this story.
